About Erica

Erica is currently living the life of a regional theatre actress as she moves from state to state performing with wonderful companies all across the US. She has worked in Maine, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Virginia, and New Hampshire, and is excited for the list to keep growing!

Erica grew up in Lake Forest, IL with her Mom and Dad (her biggest fans), two older brothers, and a home full of pets! She caught the acting bug at a very young age after her big starring role as a monkey in the chorus for The Jungle Book at just 6 years old. (well, it was a big deal for her!)

Growing up, you could always find Erica singing and dancing around the house (much to her brothers’ dismay), making up her own skits, or playing instruments. When she’s not on stage, Erica loves to build sets, sew costumes, and create props. She also has her own hand decorated sugar cookie business and is a huge lover of crafting!

While Erica has had the opportunity to perform in everything from Shakespeare's masterpieces to wonderful theatre for young audience tours, her heart truly belongs to musicals in any and all shapes and forms!

Erica Reneé Werner proudly holds a BFA in Music Theatre from Illinois Wesleyan University.
